Understanding "Obamacare"­ for Entrepreneurs

Whether you're an indie business owner, or just have questions about the upcoming health care changes, you need to attend this event and get informed before you're hit with a penalty on March 31st!




Health insurance is confusing enough. Add in health insurance exchanges, thousands of acronyms, and messages flying left-and-right about signing up for this-that-and-the-other thing, it's no wonder most people just choose to ignore the whole cacophony.

Because of upcoming changes in the Affordable Care Act, it will no longer be possible to live in blissful ignorance. On October 1st, there was a large push started to get everyone covered under a variety of new options. The mandate to obtain coverage is here and it's time to start making some decisions. 

The Washington Health Foundation's purpose is to be the connector in Washington State that brings together health service providers, public and private leaders and people in need through practical and powerful opportunities that result in individual and community well being. 

Our Personal Health Advocates, an independent non-profit service, will be on hand to answer your questions, start presenting you with available options and get you set up to figure out what options offer the best value for your situation. Some of our subject matter includes:

The Affordable Care Act

• What changes should be expected?

• Do I have to change insurance?

• What are my options?


The Health Plan Finder

• How does it work?

• Is this the only way to purchase insurance?

The Washington Health Foundation

• What is health advocacy?

• How can the WHF foundation help you?

Come with questions for yourself, your family and your business. You can always contact us directly at 855-WA-HEALTH for more information after the event. There's never any cost associated with using our services.

    I hate to miss this but I have an interview to prepare for on Thursday. I hope you offer this again.

      We'll miss you Ramona! Since this is the third time we've offered this seminar, I don't think we'll get it on the schedule again for quite some time. (At least, not before the March 31st deadline.) But, please feel free to contact www.whf.org for more information. If you feel like taking a break from your interview prep, we'd love to see you!
